5 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

LYON, France - Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone spoke with an air of resignation when asked if the club can stop Antoine Griezmann from leaving. The France striker's stock rose higher when he scored two expert goals on Wednesday night to help the Spanish club win the Europa League with a 3-0 win against Marseille. "If he stays with us, we'll continue to grow and develop. He's a lad who has given so much," Simeone said. "We've always competed at the highest level.

5 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

At the final whistle of Atletico Madrid's 3-0 win over Marseille in Wednesday's Europa League final, Diego Simeone came down from the stands-to which he had been banished after being sent from the touchline at Arsenal in the semifinal-and walked across the field.
